The fan module is the big silver box with fins on it, right next to the fans. Just follow the fan cables and you will find it. Don't jumper the fans without unplugging or you may destroy the power transistors in the fan unit. Check the temperature sensor for the fan control unit - near the front of the engine - it should have some resistance - not be short circuit or open circuit, it is a sensor, not a switch. If short or open, that is likely to be the problem, otherwise, ensure that the control units have electrical supply, otherwise, it is very likely to be the control unit.

SOURCE: 2003 Audi TT Quatro Coupe.

The main reason for the over heating of the audi tt is to do with the water pump. The propeller within the first type of water pumps is made of plastic. This was to prevent corrosion, however was never designed to last longer than 5 years. What you need to do is purchase the new style water pump. These new style water pumps have been designed with a metallic propellor which should resolve the overheating. Let us know how you get on.

SOURCE: I have 1998 VW Beetle - I replaced the Fan Relay

The red wire with black strip should be positive and brown should be neg. The middle wire is the control wire. Unplug the connector and take a cig lighter and heat the wire above the plug. Peel the plastic back to expose the wires. NEVER cut anything! Get two long peices of wire and loop them around your battery posts. Just touch each wire to the two wires on the fan. If the fan turns on its ok! If you dont want to go to the stealership, you can run a toggle switch under your dash. Just loop the two fans together and leave them unplugged. This will buy you some time untill you can get someone local to look at it. On hot days, just let it run! Better to leave them on then to forget to turn them on.

My fiat Doblo cooling fan stays on when engine is switched off


A significant number of cars have an electric cooling fan supplied by a battery live rather than an ignition live because it is believed the cooling fan should be able to start or to continue running after the engine has been switched off.
Coolant will continue to circulate after switch-off due to thermo-syphon activity and it could reduce mechanical stress on engine components to continue cooling.

Some people modify the cooling system by fitting an additional manual switch to over-ride the thermal switch for use when standing in traffic, for whenever continuous operation is desired or to use in emergency should the thermal switch operation fail.

In the absence of such a modification that has been inadvertently switched on the fault will be due to a faulty thermal switch, a faulty or stuck relay or shorted wiring. Disconnecting the thermal switch should stop the fan and if it does it indicates the switch is faulty. The switch is mostly fitted into the radiator header tank but sometimes is fitted to the bottom tank or the thermostat housing.

Fiat Punto 2002 - Over heating, not leaking coolant. I don't see a water pump. So I'm thinking a bad fan or fan relay. Suggestions ?


Hi, If it's over heating replace your thermostat. That is at the upper rad hose. You have to remove 2 bolts to get at it. Also check that the fan is running. Check that you have adaquate cooling fluid.
It should be a 50/50 mix. Good luck.

Cooling fan burned up


Get a new fan motor and blade from GM or from an aftermarket supplier.

GM parts are usually better than the aftermarket ones, though for fit and functioin.

May also look into checking the relays and harness. If the terminals of the fan show they are getting current, then the motor will have to be replaced if not turning or obviously burnt.

Good luck on this repair.

Inspect/Replace

CAUTION
The fan that draws cool air across the radiator can be driven by either a belt or electricity. Rotating fans can be dangerous. Some are controlled by an automatic switch and can start unexpectedly. When working on electric fans, keep in mind that electric cooling fans should be disconnected when working around them.
When replacing a radiator fan motor, always refer to the vehicle's service manual. The following is a general guide for cooling fan replacement.

  • Disconnect the negative battery terminal at the battery. This is necessary on vehicles using electric fans, but some vehicles may require the relocation of the charging system components.
  • Drain the cooling system.
  • Loosen or remove the hose clamps, then remove the upper and lower hoses from the radiator.
  • Disconnect the transmission cooling lines and plug them off, if equipped.
  • Disconnect the electric fan motor connector, if equipped.
  • Remove the fasteners attaching the fan module to the radiator.
  • On some vehicles equipped with air conditioning systems, it may be necessary to discharge the system. This is the case if the radiator and condenser can not be separated in the vehicle.
  • Remove the upper radiator cross member or mounts.
  • Disconnect and plug the air conditioning lines at the condenser, if needed.
  • Remove the radiator and fan module as one unit if possible.
  • Separate the fan module from the radiator.
  • If required, separate the radiator from the condenser.
  • Remove the old fan module.
  • Install the new fan module onto the radiator.
  • Reattach the fasteners attaching the fan module to the radiator.
  • If equipped, connect the electric fan motor connector.
  • Reinstall the radiator.
  • Refill the cooling system.

Fiat punto cooling fan not working. Overheating


Check for the thermostat to be defective in not recognising the temperature to switch on the fan. alternatively check the fan, the fan relay for the action. If not the relay is not switched on by the thermostat.
